Detox salads don’t have to be boring and unappealing! Try to make this revitalizing and light Kale Salad with Caramelized Grapefruit, Avocado, Feta and Pesto Dressing. If you’ve been eating well lately (just like me), you probably need some. This salad is designed to wipe the slate clean, to energize you and to make you feel good! It’s also delicious and easy to make. And kale pesto dressing is so good! You can actually make a double batch and use it for other dishes (e.g. pasta). I’ve recently started caramelizing citrus fruits like lemons, oranges and grapefruits. They are traditionally among the most common and affordable winter fruits. Being an indispensable source of nutrients, they help the body to maintain its immune function.
However, in addition to the traditional use of citrus in raw form, there are many ways to add them to your dishes. Lemons, oranges, grapefruits and limes are capable to make your meals more saturated like no other fruits can. If you dip them in Demerara sugar and then grill them on a hot dry pan, the citrus aroma will intensify, enriching the taste of any dish, be it a salad, a dessert, roasted vegetables or fish. Roasted grapefruits add a pleasant sweet bitterness to the salad, while creamy avocado and pesto dressing are in charge of binding everything together. As for the health benefits, you know that kale, grapefruits and avocado are good for you. They contain numerous vitamins, minerals, fiber, protein, omega-3 fats, carotenoids and antioxidants. If you want to restore your balance, to boost your metabolism and to feel more energetic, consider eating some kind of detox salad at least twice a week and see what happens. I have some more healthy salad recipes for you:
If you want to make any salad detoxing, cut most of the processed ingredients (cheese in this case). Use whole, simple and natural ingredients.
